The Island of Malta region

Malta is rich in history and there are a lot of sites that one should not miss out on. Valletta is the capital city of Malta, with its bastions, cathedrals, musuems and the stunning Grand Harbour.

Mdina is the oldest city and like Valletta is full of history. Malta's has two sister Islands , Comino and Gozo. Comino is the perfect place to be for a day's out on a boat as it is famous for it's Blue Lagoon. Gozo is just a 20 minute ferry ride from Mellieha. Gozo is also very rich in history.


Mellieha village is in the North of the Island. Its the last village before boarding the boat to Gozo. Mellieha boasts quite a few restaurants from pizza restaurants to high class restaurants. There is also a few bars including a wine bar. There are three pharmacies, two banks, post office, shoe shop and a few clothes shops.

Mellieha is also surronded by quite a few beaches, the closest one to the villa is Mellieha Bay.

Mellieha celebrates the Village Feast on the 8th September every year.

Places of interest in Melllieha are World War 2 shelters, Popeye Village and the red tower.

Mellieha is also a great place for diving and water sports.

"Superb spacious villa"

Lovely villa within walkable distance of sea and shops. We were a party of 11 and had hired cars and with supermarket about a mile away it was perfect. Karen, the owner, and her family couldn't have been more helpful as we were needing bike hire and tennis courts - I only wish we had got car hire through her ( don't book Gold Car as we were stung with a large insurance fee when we clocked in at the airport) The swimming pool was great and infact with an age range from 19 - 85 it was a perfect venue. We would definitely recommend it to any of our friends.

"Wonderful Holiday at Villa Sunny Side."

Me and My Wife plus grandson aged (9) stayed at the villa. The villa is extremely well equiped and located in the premier part of the island. Our grandson loved the two pools and actually learnt to swim complete lengths here. The facility to sit out early for breakfast is what the Med is all about. An extremely friendly family run the villa. Local shops and restaurants close by. (We are returning May 2012).

"Villa Sunny Side is Excellent"

The party consited of grandparents, parents and children aged 2 1/2 and 1 year. The villa was delightful and superbly equipped - it met our every requirement. The adult pool and children's paddling pool were much enjoyed by all. The villa was spotlessly clean on arrival and the owner visited early morning daily (without disturbing occupants) to clean the pools and surrounding area. A fault in the fridge/freezer was attended to immediately. Supermarkets and restaurants are a little distance away so a car is essential. I have nothing but praise for the villa and would recommend it thoroughly to families of all ages.

"A home away from home.....with up to 10 of your best friends/family."

The owners are very nice, thorough and flexible people. The villa is in outstanding condition. Large kitchen enabling catering for a large group, with modern appliances and plenty of cookware. Cooking is not necessary as there are plenty of restaurants in Mellieha, but sitting at home for dinner is possible for up to 10-12 people (indoor or out). The villa has day round sunlight, but its also possible to find space in the shade. The bedrooms and bathrooms are modern, and well maintained. The entire house is very clean, and hence very welcoming when you first arrive. The pool area is great, and again well maintained. There is enough space for sitting poolside (shade or sun), and it is in the sun until about 6pm (in summer). Perhaps the chlorine levels were a little high during our stay, but we were 10 adults so perhaps that was an exception. But with small children that should be addressed. In the outdoor area there is a shower/ toilet, small BBQ and electricity connection (for music or whatever) The area itself is very quiet, so its perfect for a relaxing trip. Very safe. The nearest shops/restaurants/bars are not ideally in walking distance if you have children, so a car is recommended. Granted, rarely used, but helps in supermarket runs or transport to the beach with luggage. Otherwise the walk is an easy 15-20 mins to the best sandy beach in Malta. Finally, the internet WIFI worked well and consistently, which is really a bonus in Malta rental properties. We had about 10 different devices working on the WiFi. A1 service.

"Fantastic Villa!"

We stayed in this villa with family and friends and children aged 7 to 15. The villa is very spacious and well equipped. The Pool is fantastic and suitable for all age groups. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We all had a fantastic holiday in this villa and wouldn't hesitate to go back. Would advise to hire a car to explore the island, but the owners are more than willing to help you with this. The pictures on the website do not do it justice.
